After Episode 4, I'm even more excited to see The Show Explore In This She-Hulk Comic Detail ...

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is a great value for Disney+ because it allows the show to show a different side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly the legal system. In the span of just a few episodes the show has been able to highlight the special differences in humorous and entertaining ways.

"Is This Not Real Magic?" is a perfect example. Wong (Benedict Wong) goes to his lawyer She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) seeking to clarify the distinction with legal precedent. Its a terrific setup for a comical misadventure that reach its conclusion when a Criss Angel-type named Donny Blaze (Rhys Coiro) accidentally opens a portal to a hell dimension

I become ever more excited for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law to adapt one of my favorite She-Hulk comic arcs (which was a key inspiration for the series) - the way in which they relate actual events are verified in court.

Dan Slotts She-Hulk Comics' How Do Marvel Comics Work?

Jennifer Walters starts out at Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holliway's superhero law division, which includes regular books and case materials that pertain to the legal system as you and I know it, as well as a massive library of Marvel Comics issues.

Jennifer meets Stu Cicero, an extraordinary comic book nerd, and he explains how the Marvel libraries may be used in court. Most issues are licensed by the heroes themselves, and the seal from the Comics Code Of America on those dating back to 2002 serves as a federal agency's seal of approval.

Dan Slott makes a fantastic use of this wonderful, meta feature in his comic book run, and while the Disney+ original series can't pull it off in the exact same way, it's not just something that can be done, but something that has already been established.

Court-admissible comics can work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because we have already seen published comics in films.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe's second act introduces a sequence of children going up to a newsstand to purchase a brand new comic about the patriotic hero, dating back to the 1940s.

The First Avenger comic demonstrates an event that was not actually taken place in the continuity (Captain America punching Adolf Hitler in the jaw), but youll also notice that it does not include the Comics Code of America seal, which is completely plausible that following Steve Rogers' disappearance shortly after Tony Stark announced that he is Iron Man or after The Battle of New York, as seen in The Avengers.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Has Already Featured A Comics Office

What just strengthens my hopes more is the fact that She-Hulk: Attorney At Law has already embraced the concept of "Superhuman Law," and while there isnt a scene when she visits the firm's law library, it was hard for me to overlook the decor of one of the company's employees' offices.

In case you can't tell, there's an open bookcase full of long boxes. If you examine the comics closely enough, you can see Hulk, Captain America, Thor, and other subjects, and why would they be housed in a law office if they didn't have some legal significance? The superhero/supervillain history in the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn't anywhere near as extensive as that in Marvel Comics.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law has just five episodes left in its nine-episode Season 1 run, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the show will introduce the concept of comics being admissible in court. It's not just a fun new area to explore within the MCU, but the image of Jennifer Walters and Nicky sitting on the office floor searching for the key to an upcoming case is something that fans should see depicted.
